Annotation Every year, over a hundred thousand workers bring claims to the Employment Tribunal. The settling of disputes between employers and unions has been exchanged by many for individual litigation. In Struck Out, Barrister David Renton gives a practical and critical guide to the system. In doing so, he punctures a number of media myths about the tribunals. Far from bringing flimsy cases, two-thirds of claimants succeed at the hearing. Far from paying lottery-size jackpots, average awards are just a few thousand pounds scant consolation for a loss of employment and often serious psychological suffering. The book includes a critique of the present government's proposals to reform the Tribunal system. Employment tribunals are often seen by workers as the last line of defense against unfairness in the workplace. Struck Outshows why we can't rely on the current system to deliver fairness and why big changes are needed.
